I have always said this blog was about pottery and gardening two of my passions. There are others, but some are less bloggable than others. At any rate, I think it only makes sense to offer some of what happens to garden produce that we consume, that doesn't go to market. Alternately this may be an idea for some of my customers...we use swiss chard and zucchini interchangably. I think nutritionally swiss chard likely has the upper hand , and both are in abundance right now in this garden.
